When I'm not working or moderating Stack Apps, I have a tendency to meddle in bug reports on Meta or take part in writing userscripts for the Stack Exchange network which add features that sometimes get implemented natively. Here's a few you may be interested in:

I've also been known to occasionally break (and sometimes fix!) the Data Explorer, and to busy myself with maintaining the Election Statistics page.

comment Allow registrant to use write access without linking Stack Apps post
The only possible downside would be making sure this requirement was made clear, otherwise people might publish an app without creating the post and then no one could use it.

comment Allow registrant to use write access without linking Stack Apps post
The association is already tracked internally, so that's mostly only a concern for users of the application to have a place to complain. Assuming we still require a post for anyone who is not the API key owner to use the key, I think we'd end up with the best of both worlds (i.e. no app posts until the app is ready for others to use)

comment Do the questions tagged “placeholder” need it explicitly in the title?
Yeah, we just need a better system anyway, because the way it works now is silly. :(

comment How to deal with the “Too Many Requests” error coming as HTML?
I don't know the specifics, but a single request every 200ms should be fine, unless maybe you were doing it constantly for hours - I've never created that scenario, so I don't know what happens in that case. Typically this will happen if you've sent many requests in a very short period of time, like 1 every 1 ms or something.
